Aliens Vs. Zombies #3
When a meteor carrying the Zombie virus hits Earth it triggers the potential end of mankind. The last chance for humanity is the spacecraft full of Alien scientists tasked with eliminating the interstellar virus.
We’re at the midway point now and the introductions are all sorted, the Aliens are here to help, the Zombies…aren’t and the humans are stuck in the middle. There are the heroic ones and the ones who are out for themselves! This issue sets the tone nicely with the kit the aliens need being in the middle of the zombies and the humans helping and causing problems in equal parts. It’s an interesting idea having the aliens as scientists instead of warriors and it seems to be working!

Sela Mathers is asked to be a guest speaker at a small college, but what she doesn’t realize is that the 3 Little Pigs from her past have some very big horrors in store for her! The 3 Little Pigs return, and this time, they’ve summoned an evil that may be too powerful for anyone to contain! Could this be the end for Professor Sela Mathers? Find out in Zenescope’s all new Halloween Special!
A one-shot story just for Halloween – Sela goes out herself visiting old friends and has problems of her own… This was an interesting read and a fun one-shot, I must say I worked out the identity of the demon before it was said, maybe that says more about me though! This was a good one-shot for new readers too!
